St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Lawyers handling baby powder lawsuit claims related to ovarian cancer for the Onder Law Firm are reaching out to families through the firm’s Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Center website. Persons whose mother, wife, or other loved one was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has a history of baby powder use may be eligible to real compensation through filing a baby powder lawsuit. The firm provides no cost, no obligation case review and timely baby powder cancer news and updates.
Johnson & Johnson is facing litigation on two levels regarding the purported link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. First, the pharmaceutical giant is embroiled in at least two baby powder class action lawsuits, one in Illinois and the other in California. Secondly, the makers of talcum powder hygiene products have already lost at least one baby powder lawsuit in which a jury confirmed a connection between perineal talcum powder use and the development of ovarian cancer.*
The baby powder case in Illinois, Barbara Mihalich v. Johnson & Johnson (Case No. 3:14-cv-00600-MJR-SCW in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois) is currently underway. This particular case seeks to establish a class among Illinois women who bought talcum powder products within the past five years and “expected talc to be safe to use”, according to court documents. The labels on Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, do not contain a warning for the risk of ovarian cancer, according to court documents.
The baby powder lawsuit in California is much the same. In Mona Estrada v. Johnson & Johnson (Case No. 2:14-cv-01051-TLN-KJN, in the U.S District Court for the Eastern District of California), plaintiff Mona Estrada alleges negligence, false advertising, concealing information, and misrepresenting a product based on the lack of warning regarding the risk of developing ovarian cancer from using talc baby powder. The California baby powder lawsuit calls for a mandatory warning label on J&J’s talc products.
The first baby powder lawsuit was won against Johnson & Johnson during 2014 when a South Dakota federal jury confirmed that Ms. Deane Berg, the plaintiff, developed ovarian cancer as a result of her routine and prolonged use of talc baby powder products for perineal dusting. This outcome gave hope to plaintiffs throughout the country wishing to take legal action against Johnson & Johnson and the talc mining companies Luzenac America and Rio Tinto Materials. The lawsuit, filed on April 30, 2014 in the United States District Court in the Southern Division of South Dakota, is known as Deane Berg v. Johnson & Johnson, Case 4:09-cv-04179-KES.
Johnson & Johnson is facing litigation from many corners this year. The company, known for its family-oriented products such as Tylenol and baby soap, has issued a substantial number of product recalls in the past five years, ranging from over-the-counter drugs like Children’s Tylenol to major medical devices such as De Puy hip replacement parts, according to a timeline published by Reuters in February of 2012.**
